Chivalry and Philanthropy are alive and well in Vancouver! Last weekend Tita Suicideteamed up with sponsors Lords of Gastown, and HUSH Magazine to host XOXO Erotica, a multi media art show and online extravaganza, designed to celebrate art, and raise awareness about women’s support services.
“Definitely not your run of the mill art show. #XOXOErotica proves that art, love, and the internet can coexisit with the greater good” –@tenimess
The show turned out to be an an outstanding night of music, mixers, and multi media, and the audience showed its appreciation by staying late into the night, sipping on local ales, and dancing, while videos by tmronin and tsurufoto played in the background.
Meanwhile an extended conversation was helped along by remote participants, who joined in online to advocate for erotic art. It was a perfect capsule in which to discuss topics ranging from the importance of nude modelling in the art world, to the NSA and freedom of expression in North America.
“Where are all my #XOXOErotica Vancouver people at? #wishiwereincanada” – @Jherm
With excitement for the next event already building, Tita and curator Fang Ling Leeare headed to New Jersey, where they will host the second round of the show duringEXXXOTICA at the Edison Convention Centre, October 4-6th. This time East Coast Suicide Girls and members including Fabrizia, Spliff, Karma, and Lux have been invited to participate, as well as members from across New England. It promises to be a great addition to the already expanded dialogue and social commentary created by the Vancouver show, and will definitely give the internet something to talk and post about!
